BY LAUNCHING SCIENCE COMPANIES.
Founding EDA / ECAD R&D Engineer: Reconfigurable Compute Acceleration

London / Barcelona / Remote

We’re building an entirely new paradigm for computation that has the software level reconfiguration of FPGAs whilst being several orders of magnitude faster than ASICs and other hardware accelerators. The company is currently in stealth and we’re looking for the final member of the founding team. 

 

About DSV

DSV is a venture builder and new paradigm for applied science. We bring together teams of founders, entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, market shapers and investors to seize crucial opportunities and redefine industries. We work across sectors from oncology to energy storage across the stack from cutting edge technology to fortune 100 partnerships and have built nearly 30 companies over the last few years. 

The mission:

Compute architectures have been highly optimised on GPUs and ASICs to accommodate the shift towards specialist processing loads such as neural nets and functions used in financial models. However, the process remains rigid, extremely costly, laden with power-speed tradeoffs and is fixed until the next generation of hardware. This sits awkwardly in a world where new algorithms are discovered at a near monthly cadence and this will only accelerate with time.

Until recently it has been infeasible to create architectures that can escape the inherent tradeoffs in CPU, ASIC and FPGA design, both at a materials and software level, whilst maintaining compatibility with existing scalable manufacturing processes. We have identified a way to create many orders of magnitude improvement in the underlying functions of a wide range of common tasks and move semiconductor development almost entirely into the software domain. 

Your role: Analyse, build, scale

Taking a Founding Analyst role at DSV is a fantastic opportunity to develop concepts for, and launch your own startup. Working with us, you’ll have access to the systems and environment to guide your thinking, and we’ll even pay you to start your own company and support you in building the founding team, and developing early data to land your first customers and investors. 

The role transitions over time, with you initially working in an Analyst role, scoping out your own project opportunities and working with a dedicated Sector expert team at DSV to identify which could become companies. You will focus on mapping out the constraints and limitations currently leading to a lack of innovation in the Sector, and build out high performance, multidisciplinary teams to augment your own capabilities and develop proof-of-concept IP in the lab. After a 9 month period we will support you in taking the role of CEO or CTO of one of the companies we design together.

It’s a full time role working across market analysis, laboratory science and venture creation, and you’ll potentially be able to be part of the founding team for more than one new venture in the area (and own an equity stake in each one of them). DSV will provide up to £500k of investment to enable your startup to conduct further 6-figure research.

Compared to other Entrepreneur in Residence programmes, DSV’s is friendly to individuals with no previous founder experience and comes with a commitment from us to support your company to make a real impact in the market.

No prior idea or IP required.

You will be working alongside an existing team who are specialised in the materials / optics and algorithm optimisation components of this emerging company.

The ideal candidate

Passionate about high performance automation across VLSI architecture, logic, and physical design, with a particularly creative attitude, deep insight on one or two areas below with a demonstrated ability to break new ground, with higher level awareness across the other areas. 

  1. Experience with, and ideally in developing, placement and routing (PNR) or other ECAD/EDA tools and ideally in developing the underlying algorithms.
  2. Experience in logic synthesis, RTL, verification and power estimation with a particular focus on performance models for analysing microarchitecture trade-offs and static timing analysis, timing libraries and clock tree synthesis (CTS)
  3. Experience in physics based simulation, geometry modelling and simulation of GPU or CPU architectures and / or parallel programming.
  4. Ability to think across the stack and layers of abstraction with a strong view on areas that are open to optimisation.
  5. A broad interest in non-volatile memory would also be a bonus
